PALM CITY — About $21,000 in cell phones were taken overnight from the USA Wireless store in the 1300 block of Southwest Martin Highway, according to a sheriff’s report.
Apparently someone tunneled in through walls on Feb. 25 from an adjoining empty office space and spray painted the windows black to conceal what they were doing.
A USA Wireless employee on Feb. 25 discovered the break-in when going into the store before opening at 10:30 a.m. She noticed a chemical smell. In the supply room she found holes in the wall and a hole in the side of the safe. Cell phones and $200 in cash were missing.
